Run up to the Economic Crisis: Enabling Risk Management

Restoring confidence with a new perspective on Governance and Risk Management

Date: Thursday, March 05, 2009
Time: 09:00 AM Pacific   |  11:00 AM Central   |  12:00 PM Eastern

For Risk Officers, the events of the past year have challenged all assumptions about what defines the best practices of governance and risk management. In particular, the appropriateness of the Chief Risk Officer’s dual, and potentially conflicting, roles of working to advance the business and acting as a provider of “independent” oversight are being questioned. In this webinar, we will discuss an integrated framework for deploying governance and risk management practices that will lead to higher adaptability for changing business needs and enhancing capabilities that will guard against adversity.

The seminar will include discussion on:

  • What can the Network and Distributive models of governance tell us about improving the practices of risk management and governance?
  • What roles do effective communication, audit and IT systems play in this model?
  • Can the Chief Risk Officer be a “Business Line Advocate” as our speaker argued in a paper written in 2001?
  • How critical is the technology in enabling effective risk management? What are the key requirements of a GRC platform?
